The Gaily News: Google Doodle salutes Keith Haring

Google pays tribute to the legacy of artist and AIDS activist Keith Haring with today's Google Doodle, in honor of his birthday. Haring died in 1990 from AIDS-related complications.

The conservative group One Million Moms is taking a second shot at JC Penney, after protesting the company naming Ellen DeGeneres as its spokesperson earlier this year. This time around, the anti-gay organization is offended by the retailer's May Mother's Day catalogue, particularly by the inclusion of a photo of a lesbian couple with their two daughters.

Texas-based rapper Adair Lion — who's straight, by the way — has penned a pro-gay hip-hop anthem. His new single, "Gay is Okay", embraces the gay community and promotes acceptance and equality, uncommon notions in the world of mainstream hip-hop.
